Sadness


Sadness fills humans
Like an overflowing river

Sadness is vanquished only by joy
Joy will always conquer it

When sadness overflows
It comes out in tears

Tears will wash it away
Joy may come and help them

And then only wet spots will remain on one's face

That will be illuminated by joy's flaming lantern
A lantern that makes one's face shine
As it is reflected in the eyes…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
